I recently installed Transmission 2.03.
Since then I get my NGinx error log flooded with messages like "[error]
21475#0: *6383 open() “/var/web/tracker.thepiratebay.org/announce” failed
(2: No such file or directory), client: 127.0.0.1, server: ~mydomain.com$,
request: “GET /announce?info_hash=”
It seems there is a misconfiguration somewhere. Could you help me on that
the misconfiguration is here:
$ host tracker.thepiratebay.org
tracker.thepiratebay.org has address 127.0.0.1
it’s typical for disabled trackers to get pointed to localhost
(instead of pulled from dns completely).
nothing you can do about that really, at best some workaround to stop
requests from ending up in your log.
(it’s generally a good idea to set up a dummy default virtualhost that
used in production just so all the spam ends up in it’s log.)
